Evaluating & Ranking The 2016 New York Jets Weaponry

6. Jace Amaro, TE

  • AGE: 23, 6’5”, 265 lbs.
  • 2014: 14 G, 53 TGT, 38 REC, 345 YDS, 2 TD

Aside from Brandon Marshall, it’s the New York Jets starting tight end who truly boasts the best raw physical skills from a weaponry point of view.

Amaro ran an extremely quick 4.57 40-yard at the combine two seasons ago. This is super fast for the position. Obviously, though, he missed all of 2015 due to injury. It was a blow that was quickly adjusted with the use of many WRs.

Season off or not, the kid has talent and his below average rookie campaign should not be an alarming factor.

To know exactly what Amaro brings to the table, take a gander at Week 6 of the 2014 season. With the Jets hosting the Denver Broncos, a goal-to-go situation was in the cards. The play? A simple fade to the rookie:

Amaro has Rob Gronkowski-like attributes near the goalline. When spread out in this situation, there are very few linebackers who can match up one-on-one.

Amaro’s return will be make for a very giddy QB come August, whether it’s Geno or Fitz.
